Autumn Rose

“I told her once I wasn’t good at anything. She told me, survival is a talent.”
Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted

The Autumn Rose is what I like to call this little dress.
I don't know why. It just came into my head when I looked at it. lol

I used what I call my "Motherinlaw" stitch. lol
She made a little sweater for my son in yellow using it and
it took me a long time to figure out how she did it.

This dress is reversible.
You can wear this dress this way or turn it inside out and it will look equally as nice
and you get two different looks.

It's very warm, puffy, keeps the body heat and yet lets air in.
A little 2-4 year old girl can wear it.
I know cause I tried it on my doll. lol
She has become quite a model for me.

I am proud to say I used no pattern for this dress. Just played by ear.
Since it is pumpkin colored, I thought maybe using brown
for the rose and trim would be nice
but then I thought... it's more cheerful with the yellow corn look.

It shows well on the bed cover I made a few years back too.
I just lay it out at the foot of the bed for display.

Love means to commit oneself ,with out the guarantee to give oneself completely,
in the hope, that our love, will produce love, in the loved person.
Love is an act of faith
whoever is of little faith
is also 

of little love.

Thanks Izdiher but it requires no talent.
Anyone can do it.
I think today machines do too many things. It's nice but hand made, is still hand made and personal.
